I don’t know whether this is supposed to work (would be nice though):
if you use object visualisation for particles, you can animate the object properties (loc/rot/scale …). The time starts for each particle anew, so the object time also starts anew.
But if you animate the material (e.g. color), the time runs globally. So if you animate the color of an object in a certain frame all objects have the same color.
Is this the way it should work, or should this be fixed?
